Imprivata supports NHS with free remote access and data security solutions
Imprivata Confirm ID for Remote Access licenses provided at no cost to the NHS during COVID-19 pandemic
Imprivata is providing free-of-charge licences to the UK NHS and other healthcare organisations in Europe and around the world during the COVID-19 pandemic so that more healthcare professionals can work safely and remotely while critical systems and sensitive patient data remain secure.
The free Imprivata Confirm ID for Remote Access software will ensure healthcare workers in any location can access relevant hospital systems and patient data.
Simple and speedy access can be provided to network systems, cloud applications, Windows servers and desktops, and other critical systems and key workflows.
Imprivata improves system and data security by enabling two-factor authentication.
Convenient authentication methods, such as push-token notification, can also be leveraged across workflows.
And healthcare organisations can rapidly introduce security that is familiar, fast, and efficient for staff as new hospital facilities are speedily brought on stream and NHS returners and temporary staff join the workforce and need to get up to speed quickly to be most productive.
We have put together a simple license agreement providing unlimited licenses for all users, regardless of whether they are currently using Imprivata. This will ensure that IT departments can act immediately without worrying about budgets and can mobilise staff at this critical time
Dr Dan Johnston, clinical workflow specialist at Imprivata, explains: “In unprecedented circumstances we are committed to supporting the global healthcare community to get through this current emergency.
“We are doing everything we can to help, including taking the very-practical step of providing no-cost licenses to hospitals for remote workers.”
He added: “We have put together a simple license agreement providing unlimited licenses for all users, regardless of whether they are currently using Imprivata. This will ensure that IT departments can act immediately without worrying about budgets and can mobilise staff at this critical time.”
